Features
Malted from buckwheat, a pseudo-cereal*, Château Buckwheat malt is used to produce gluten-free beer. Château Buckwheat malt may contain traces of other malt grains containing gluten. *Pseudocereals are broadleaf plants (non-grasses) that are used in much the same way as cereals (true cereals are grasses). Their seed can be ground into flour and otherwise used as cereals. Examples of pseudocereals are amaranth, quinoa, and buckwheat.
Characteristics
Château Buckwheat malt is used in the production of gluten-free beer. Adds a particular nutty and malty flavor to your beer. It also can be used in specialty beers to render a rich and deep tone. NB! Buckwheat malt has no diastatic power.
Usage
Any type of gluten-free beer; up to 40 % of the mix.
Storage and Shelf life
Malt should be stored in a clean, cool (< 22 °C), dry (< 35 RH %) and pest free environment. If these conditions are observed, we recommend using all whole kernel products within 12-18 months from the date of manufacture and all milled products within 3 months. Improperly stored malts can lose freshness and flavor.
